Consensus Comparison: The Duke of Burgundy, Mommy January 24, 2015

I mentioned on Twitter that, along with The Duke of Burgundy, Salvation Army was the other well-reviewed gay-themed movie this week. But really, there are at least three movies this week that prominently feature queer characters–the other one is The Humbling. And I can’t tell from the reviews whether there are any gay/queer characters in Mommy.

At the bottom of this post is a late roundup on Song of the Sea, released last month and nominated for the Best Animated Feature Oscar.
